  • Alternative PVC PIPE PEOPLE displays.
  • PVC Pipe Puppets

Instead of 'fitting' pvc pipe together with pvc joints, drill a hole in the end of your pipes and use a strong ribbon to "wire" the pipes together. This will create a "pvc person" something like a skeleton which is POSABLE.  Use ribbon because it will help you pin it to the wall in the next step.

Students fasten their pipe people in poses on a wall using pushpins through the ribbons connecting the pipes.  In this way, you can create a large posable and RE-USABLE SCULPTURE WALL that displays a scripture verse in action.  Students can make several of these quite quickly.

Photograph the student's face, print, and attach as the head to the posed sculpture.pipecharacter

Here's one made for a much larger display (and is the frame of a puppet worn by the student), but it show the idea of how the pipes are loosely connected with ribbon.
